I took my car here to be repaired after I was hit on the right bumper. The repairs looked nice after I got the car back and I was happy....until.....the next week I went to my car maintenance shop and found that something had been unplugged in the air conditioning that would not allow me to get air conditioning. I could get it repaired but it would cost me money when the problem was caused by Dodd's. When I called back, the lady was very nice and said to bring it back in. I did and the very first thing the tech said before I even got the first word out of my mouth, was "we never got under the hood" in a very belligerent manger. I offered to call my mechanic to have him verify what he had written on my work order, but the tech kept insisting they never went under the hood, which is stupid since they had to replace the hood and bumper from the accident and when you remove the bumper the air conditioning unit is right there. I became very unhappy, but he offered to check it out. I called my mechanic anyway, who stayed on the line with me until the tech came back and announced "well, we did find something needed to be reconnected and we'll do it now". !!!!! I have no problem with the looks of my car, but this exchange I had with the tech was not necessary. I will be loathe to recommend anyone to go there unless your insurance company insists.

Fast service for a good price. I got keys cut and programmed for 1/6 the price quoted by others.

Gearhead Auto & Customz
I had to have my AC repaired. I tried to do a recharge myself but after a failed attempt, I knew I was looking at a new compressor. When I took my car to Gearhead Rob, he immediately diagnosed the issue and provided a quick and price friendly option. Once the part was received (I have a 2006 Nissan, so he had to track down what I understand can be a hard to find & expensive part for even Nissan Dealers), he was able to replace the compressor within just a few hours for about a 3rd of the dealer cost. While waiting on the repair, I was able to see some of the cars he was modifying and I am impressed (especially the mustangs). If you need trusted auto repair or if you are looking to improve the look/performance of your vehicle, this is definitely the place to go. Also, ask him about the Plasti-dip as a cheap and durable paint option.

DONT GO THERE BAD SERVICE AND THEY LIE. IT all started being 4 small dents. one on the roof and one on the trunk. the rest were on the passenger side. they told me one week to pull the dents and paint the side, trunk, and roof. i was okay with that. a week goes by, they say 2 more weeks. so now it has taken 3 weeks and i havent heard from them. it goes on a month. i get my car back but the paint that they "repainted" was Orange peeled, also they did not buffer it out. My Car Looked Worse Than when it went in. also they messed up my weather seals on the roof, and the weather seals around the windshield. there was a lot of "phone calls missed" according to them because they said they called my cell phone daily...LIE, but it has been 2 and a half months and my car is STILL IN THERE SHOP TODAY !!!!! i dropped it off yesterday to get that paint rebuffed and sandblasted because they do not know what the hell they are doing. and they told me it will take one day. now they are saying a couple days because one of the seals they ordered was bad.... BULLSH*T , THEY JUST CANT DO THERE JOBS TO SAVE THEIR LIFE'S . DO NOT GO THERE TAKE IT FROM MY EXPERIENCE. OH AND I PAID 3,500 FROM MY INSURANCE AND THEY STILL COULDNT DO IT RIGHT WITH THAT MUCH MONEY HANDED TO THEM. DONT GO THERE IF YOU WANT YOUR CAR WORKED ON BY SOMEONE WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

Had them replace a clutch in my Mazda6 in 2011. They had the car for TWO MONTHS with little to no communication. I had to call them over and over and over. After I finally got my car back the front suspension was creaking and noisy, something the car never did before they took it apart. Today (7/6/12), 13 months later, the clutch they replaced failed again.
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
